Denim Makes Me Feel Like A Kid

Summer break officially began for me today! That means more time for blogging! :D I am so behind on outfit shots, so the next few entries will probably be a little out of order.

This was Monday's outfit. I went to Goodwill on Saturday and picked up this awesome cropped denim jacket for $4.50, thanks to my nifty 50% off coupon. :) I also got three pairs of high-waisted denim shorts because I am in love with that look right now. You'll see them soon enough!

Dress: Robbie Bee (vintage)
Jacket: Gap (thrifted)
Shoes: Payless

This outfit screams "90's" to me. I think it's the denim with the black and white pattern, but mostly it's the denim jacket. It's probably why I'm such a fan of the whole denim trend right now. It reminds me of being a kid for some reason. I was feeling a little 90's anyway since Meaghan and I had gone to see Beauty and the Beast The Musical at a local theater the day before. I can't wait to post my outfit from that day. It involved my favorite pair of the newly thrifted shorts!

There are three details that I really like about this jacket:

1. It has a name tag inside of it. Not only that, but the previous owner actually wrote their last name on it!

I love seeing the history in the clothes I thrift. It's kind of like a mystery too. Who was Wright?

2. It has a secret pocket on the inside. It excites me when jackets have inside pockets. I don't know. I think it makes me feel cool like a spy or something.

3. There is a second name written on the actual label of the jacket. This jacket belonged to two previous owners! Neat! I wonder who this Scalera person was...

I'm excited to be able to update more! I'll probably be able to venture out to find some cool places to take pictures as well. Hooray for the free time that summer brings! :)
